The Official Description: Will Oliver get the gift he’s hoping for this Christmas?
Oliver Walker’s Christmas is shaping up to be a quiet one. That is until hunky neighbour Ed Middleton moves in next door.
Attraction is instant, but Ed is only there temporarily and neither wants to start something with an expiration date.

If Oliver doesn’t want to lose his heart, he’ll have to show Ed that home is wherever he wants it to be, and love is possible no matter what.
No Place Like Home is a heartwarming story of love between neighbours, family and friends, about adorable rescue cats, and remembering that sometimes the very thing you’re looking for is right under your nose.

My thoughts bit: I absolutely adored this book! I’m not a huge fan of the holidays and this one made me want to rush out and get a damned Christmas tree!!!!
Ed has moved into his deceased Aunt’s condo to help get it ready to sell. He loves his family and is happy to be back home, but he feels as though he needs to move on. His last relationship ended with his partner saying that he was too attached to his family and needed to be a man and stand on his own two feet. So once the place is fixed up… he’s moving north.
Then Ed meets Oliver. Oliver is taking care of the woman who lives next door. He’s sweet, fun, youthful and Ed likes him almost instantly. (That is after he calls the police on him!)
The two men begin working together in the house. Oliver has some reno skills that Ed needs… and Olver also has a very revealing pair of jeans that Ed doesn’t mind seeing every few days. The attraction between them men becomes obvious after a few hours together but both of them are unwilling to act on it. Ed will be moving and neither of them wants to begin something that they know has an expiration date.
This book made me happy. There is so much friendship, family and love in it that I couldn’t stop smiling. This is one of those books that I will definitely pick up again if I’m having a rough day or feel like I need to read about a happy ending! Loved it! A holiday story can’t get any better than this! perfection as far as I’m concerned.
And Monty!! This is also the story of Monty – a cat who needs a forever home. I bet you want to know what happens to Monty!!! (I was worried about him!)
